Little Owen, despite being a Marxist himself, is keen to avoid such labels being attached to the Labour leadership. He had one of his trademark tantrums when he alleged the BBC digitally enhanced Corbyn's hat to make it appear 'more Soviet'. The truth is that they didn't need to adjust his hat, take any picture of hatted Corbyn and put it next to one of Lenin and they're identical. Beyond that one can also look to the various groups and movements that Corbyn has supported around the world. Sinn Fein/IRA has its roots in Marxism, the ANC is aligned with the South African Communist Party and he continues to excuse the disastrous left-wing policies of Chavez and Maduro in Venezuela. So perhaps it shouldn't have come as much of a surprise when Corbyn was linked to a Czech spy and dubbed 'Agent Cob'.
Whether or not the claims are true is rather irrelevant when one considers all his other known affiliations. We already know Corbyn is a communist and a traitor, despite whatever baseless protestations come from his supporters. And so the same can be said for Michael Foot, the last truly red leader of the Labour Party prior to Corbyn. Foot has been the focus of similar claims for years and they resurfaced over the weekend. Foot denied it to his grave and the left of Labour continue to feign outrage for the simple reason that it is not appealing to the electorate to have such ties out in the open. But why should it surprise anyone were it true? The Labour left are drawn to such causes, less so Foot, more so Corbyn.
In reality Corbyn is far and away to the left of Foot and that makes him all the more dangerous. It's why we must not let his followers pull the wool over the eyes of the electorate with the romanticism of 'socialism'. He will always align himself with enemies of this country, it is the habit of his lifetime. Anything that undermines the capitalist West is fair game, whether it be communist or even Islamist. Diane Abbott summed up this notion when she declared that 'Every defeat of the British state is a victory for all of us'. She wasn't merely referring to the Labour Party when she said that, she meant the left, the proletariat, the hammer and sickle.
